Event description

Description

“Living not Existing” report by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists shows how OTs can utilise their specialist skills to make cost savings for services while improving well-being outcomes for people

Access Independent has been working with Nottinghamshire County Council, with our Occupational Therapists assessing for social care needs as part the council’s drive to a more integrated approach. We are in discussion with other Local Authorities to provide this service.

Therefore we expect to need to recruit and train OTs to undertake social care reviews.

To help you be part of this initiative and use your skills in an alternative setting, Access Independent are presenting a one day course to help prepare Occupational Therapists to assess for social care needs.

Topics covered, supported by group work to put things in context:

Overview of the Care Act and compliance

Social Care and Support Assessments

Risk assessment

Mental Capacity Act Assessments

Carers Assessments

Care planning

Personal Budgets

Direct payments

Managed care requests

How OT skills fit in with conducting these assessments

Cost: £120 for first 10 people, Standard rate £170, includes lunch etc.
